Overall feelings about the race: Started out about top 20 and my legs felt loaded down. I just held on from there and ended up in 25th. The hills were my strength, I would gain usually 2 positions on the hills and then lose it on the flats.
Best part of the race:  The best part of the race would be the main hill, it was a challenge and I don't believe the course would remain as impressionable without it.
The FLCC Experience:  Eversince the minute we showed up we have been treated with a great amount of respect. It is easy to see that a large amount of time has been spent on the planning. The hotel is amazing, the location is renound and I am continually in awe. 

Personal note:  I'd like to thank my family for all the support that they have given me with my running, and also my coach Justin Taylor for getting me here. Justin truly dedicates himself to everything he does and I feel blessed to know him. Also Nicole Danner, you're the most amazing person I've ever met and you've helped me more than you know.
